Story Hour: Join us every Thursday during the school year @ 10 am for Story Hour. There will be stories, games, crafts, playtime, and snacks!
Paws to Read: In conjunction with the Mayfield Animal Shelter this special program allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog or cat for 15 minutes. Patient, nonjudgmental pets help reluctant readers gain confidence and comfort with reading. After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble.* Parents will need to fill out and sign a waiver before their child can participate. This program is open to children in grades K-6.
Social Media Classes: July 6th, 13th, and 20th. Tired of not knowing how to connect with people on social media platforms? Then join us in July to learn how to navigate your way through Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and more. Kim Hamby will walk you through getting an account set up, and how to use social media. Remember to bring the device you will use the most, or use one of our laptops during the class. Please call or stop by the library to sign up.

Bren McClain Book Talk & Signing: Book: One Good Mama Bone
Set in early 1950s rural South Carolina, One Good Mama Bone chronicles Sarah Creamer’s quest to find her “mama bone,” after she is left to care for a boy who is not her own but instead is the product of an affair between her husband and her best friend and neighbor, a woman she calls “Sister.” But the more daunting obstacle is Sarah’s fear that her mother’s words, seared in her memory since she first heard them at the age of six, were a prophesy, “You ain’t got you one good mama bone in you, girl.” About the Author: Bren McClain was born and raised in Anderson, South Carolina, on a beef cattle and grain farm. She has a degree in English from Furman University; is an experienced media relations, radio, and television news professional; and currently works as a communications confidence coach.
